    I got a MP Skywarp today and I was surprised to see allot of his decals are stickers. Why on something thats supposed to be the premier Transformers line did Takara go back to crappy old G1 style stickers?

    to make the jet look more like a model. It your choice to add the stickers some people do not like the animated look.

    To give people the choice of applying them or not.

    Yeah. I like my all black jet, so my purple stripes stay in the wrapping.

    Maybe if Hasbro does a version of Skywarp and Thundercracker they will look like Starscream with the labels already on.

    i think he means cheap stickers compared to higher quality model decals. not so much that they're not already on, but that they're made cheaper.

    i would also have preferred it if the stickers didnt have to be applied, coz my hands arent that steady n it takes me a long time to get em straight n symmetrical :D  but yeah, its to give people a choice..i feel it looks bland without stickers... some think its cool...
    if ur talking about quality, then i dunno coz i dont own any G1s to compare with

    I actually like the stickers, personally. although I take my time, and use tweezers to carefully apply them to get them straight. The stickers for the Masterpiece Seekers actually have very good tolerances compared to some of the G1 stickers, which could have sloppy cut lines.

    And the reason for them has already been stated: Out of the box, with no decals, Skywarp has all the markings he would need as an F-15. In fact, he looks TERRIFIC without a single sticker. But if you want him to have the Decepticon logos, you've got the option of putting them on (And deciding if you want thm upside down or right-side up).

    I like the stickers but I am afraid to apply them. I suck at it and they will be all kackneyed if I try to do it. Best just leave them on the sticker sheet in the box where they can remain beautiful forever.

    I love the way the seekers look without their stickers, especially Skywarp, so I'm keeping mine unapplied. Plus there's the fact that when it comes to applying stickers I'm about as surgical as a shotgun...:lol

    I put the wing stripes on, but nothing else. Although I like the all black jet mode, Skywarp's robot mode benefits from the extra colour the stripes bring. But in the end it's a matter of personal taste.

    I think they look too plain without the stickers.
